.NET Framework 4.5

We will be installing .NET Framework 4.5 on our servers in next few days starting from 10/03 - 10/06. .NET framework 4.5 Installation is an In-Place upgrade of 4.0 to 4.5 and NOT a side-by-side installation, it actually replaces entire .NET Framework 4.0 all its assemblies with 4.5 .NET Framework version DLLs.

The websites on our servers that are currently targeted to run on 4.0 should just work fine on 4.5 Framework.  To migrate your websites to .NET 4.5 Framework all you would do is - open up your projects in Visual studio and target its platform to .NET 4.5 Framework.
